Gosh, I've been meaning to post this for a long time. My application was verified over a month ago. Just been waiting for the NSDAR board meeting in order for my membership to be official...that will be this WEEKEND!!! At the same time, I will also be attending my first state DAR conference, which, lucky for me, is being held just on the other side of town...finally, a conference I can attend without travel expenses. Can't wait!!
